Swinging Radio England Fun 50, 15th October 1966

Per Arne Berggren has very kindly provided a couple of incomplete Swinging Radio England charts (the other one is here). Those positions marked with an # have been identified with the help of Record Retailer magazine's comparison of the various offshore charts for this week (see here). A number of others (marked ^) have been identified by Brian Thompson listening to old off-air recordings. Can anyone provide the rest of this chart - or any other SRE countdowns?

* Per noted Petula Clark at number 10 but Record Retailer's analysis of that week's offshore charts has You Can't Hurry Love by The Supremes at that position. Maybe a last minute change of mind?
 
** Per noted Cher's recording of Sunny at number 17. Record Retailer suggests that Georgie Fame's and Bobby Hebb's versions of the song also shared the position.
 
*** On one of the airchecks Brian Thompson heard There Will Never Be Another You by Chris Montez announced as being at number 21. That was where it had been on the previous week's chart.



Many thanks to Per A Berggren for this chart and to Brian Thompson for his assistance. Can anyone fill in the blanks?
